Amanda Litman is the co-founder of Run for Something, a political action committee that helps young progressives interested in running for office.
The PAC launched on inauguration day in 2017, clearly as a response to the toxic orange gas cloud that was seeping into homes across the country.
Well, something happened over the past few days that spiked interest in the organization. And it’s a beautiful thing:
In the last 24 hours, we've had 20 TIMES the usual average number of people sign up to volunteer — all for state & local candidates. The GOP has no idea what they've done. https://t.co/1mOHNnk0t4 https://t.co/WDQyXq7z8d

If people who have never shown interest in politics before are motivated to volunteer and run, imagine how many will get off their asses and vote?
All because Republican senators are simply incapable of believing a woman.
Let’s make this a devastating, dark-blue tsunami that sweeps dozens of clueless old white men off the beach.
We can do it.
Remember, remember the 6th of November.
